Melton/Snape: Two men suspected in burglary spree

PUBLISHED: 11:39 06 April 2014 | UPDATED: 11:39 06 April 2014

Police are trying to trace two burglars who went on a spree across east Suffolk last night.

Three properties in Hope Crescent, Melton, were targeted, while police are linking these to a similar crime in Snape.

The first house in Melton was broken into at around 7pm, when the burglars forced their way in by smashing the rear patio doors.

Once inside, rooms were searched and a laptop computer was stolen along with other items. Property was later found in a nearby garden.

Between 6.45-9.40pm, two men forced entry into another property by smashing the rear patio doors. They were disturbed by the homeowners and were seen fleeing over a rear fence.

Also, sometime between 7-11.30pm, a shed in the rear garden of a residential property in the same street was broken into, but nothing was taken.

Police are linking these to a further incident in Snape.

At around 10.50pm, the residents of a property in Drury Park were disturbed by a noise in their rear garden.

On investigating, they saw two men fleeing the front of the property, and found that there had been an attempt to enter the house by smashing the rear patio doors. Entry was not gained and nothing was taken.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101.
